Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi welcomed the vote of confidence given to Yemen’s National Salvation Government by the Arab country’s House of Representatives.

“Given the legitimacy and legal standing of Yemen’s House of Representatives, we welcome its recent move of giving a vote of confidence to the country’s National Salvation Government,” Qasemi said in a statement on Saturday, Fars News Agency reported.

The new Yemeni government, led by the former governor of Aden, Abdul Aziz bin Habtoor, was sworn in on November 29 and formed by the Ansarullah movement.

The new government is to replace the Supreme Political Council and is tasked with running domestic affairs and dealing with Saudi Arabia’s continued aggression against the Yemeni nation.

“I hope that the representatives of Yemeni people and the Cabinet of national salvation will take effective measures toward providing services to people and reducing the impacts of war,” Qasemi said. “I also hope that the new government will be able to pave the way for peace, stability and resolution of conflicts through peaceful means.”
